Is Your Milestone Skipping MP3s? You're Not Alone

We’ve been sent a handful of emails these few hours from some unhappy Motorola Milestone users.  It seems that music is skipping whenever it’s being played, regardless of the application being used. 

My Milestone skips whilst playing back MP3s via the 3.5mm port. Stereo bluetooth is fine. I’ve tried restarting my phone, amd (sic) trying a different music playback application, but the problem remains.It’s a very short skip every few minutes, but incredibly annoying. – Motorola Support Forums

A quick poking around in some other spots reveals the same thing from users in both the UK as well as those on Telus.  Some have tried their hands at workarounds, but have come away disappointed.  If you’re a Milestone user who has experienced this issue, you’re not alone.  Don’t bother removing widgets, power cycling the phone, or formatting the memory card.  It doesn’t seem to work.  Hopefully the source of this is figured out and a quick patch is released before long.

Thanks to Tom and Jer for their emails!
